Silicon Valley Dem: Net Neutrality is More Important Than Human Rights Abuses

Rep. Ro Khanna (D-CA), the 41-year-old Democrat who represents Silicon Valley, tweeted Thursday that Sen. Marco Rubio’s attacks against Apple CEO Tim Cook for capitulating to China should be ignored because the Florida senator does not support net neutrality.

To be clear: the communist regime in China is limiting internet access to its citizens in order to quell any potential political uprising, and to continue to oppress the free speech rights of its people. Human Rights Watch explains:

The Chinese government tightly restricts freedom of expression through censorship and punishments. While the Internet has offered a marginally freer space, the government censors politically unacceptable information through means such as the “Great Firewall.”

Still, that didn’t stop the Silicon Valley Democrat from launching a very naïve attack. Saddest of all, however, might be Khanna’s call for back up from former Obama administration officials. He got no response.

If Khanna, who accepts gobs and gobs of money from Silicon Valley special interests, really thinks the human rights violations of a billion people are less important than a 2015 rule put in place by the FCC, he should fully explain that to his constituents.
